What is The Yarn Project?

The Yarn Project is a new seasonal online collection of downloadable PDF patterns.  We publish 4x a year - 2 Issues of The Knit Project and 2 of The Crochet Project.

The aim of The Yarn Project is to promote beautiful, modern crochet and knitwear patterns to the online market.  

  • Beautiful designs from some of your favourite designers.
  • Fantastic yarns – We believe that knitters shouldn't have all the fun when it comes to the very best yarns on the market. All our designs feature beautiful yarns with natural fibres.
  • Quality, consistent patterns – Taking the best practices from crochet patterns and knitting patterns, they will be easy to understand and follow. They will all be thoroughly checked so you can be confident in buying them.
  • Fairness - we aim to create a fair deal for our customers, designers, yarn sponsors and advertisers.

Who runs The Yarn Project?

The Yarn Project is run by Joanne Scrace and Kat Goldin. We are both designers with a passion for beautiful and wearable designs. 

Kat is an award winning blogger with a flair for presentation. She is the author of Crochet at Play with Kyle Books.  Her work has been featured in The Guardian, Etsy's Spring 2012 Look Book, Ideal Homes, Simply Crochet, Inside Crochet, Mollie Makes, and Juno magazine. Kat lives passionately by the motto that life is too short to match socks and will often be stepping over piles of laundry or leaning over a tower of dirty dishes to get the perfect shot. Her 3 children don’t recognise her without a Canon in front of her face and balls of yarn in her pockets.

Joanne Scrace (aka Not So Granny) specialises in seamless knitting and crochet, often vintage inspired but always with a fresh modern feel. Her work has been featured in Inside Crochet, The Knitter, Simply Crochet, Yarnwise, and Clotheshorse. Joanne keeps an eye on the technical aspect of The Yarn Project and handles all of the technical editing, quality control and contracting for The Yarn Project. She blogs about this and the trials of keeping the kids off her yarn at http://notsogranny.blogspot.com.
